The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Ge­orge Jones

ALAN DOW­SON praised the char­ac­ter of his Hamp­ton & Rich­mond side as they came from be­hind to record their third vic­tory in a week.

Two goals in the fi­nal ten min­utes se­cured a turn­around af­ter Marvin Mor­gan put Bath City in front with just a quar­ter of an hour played. Beavers boss Dow­son told

The NLP: “We were use­less in the first half but showed some guts in the sec­ond. I went mad at half-time, which I haven’t done in a long time.

“Com­ing back from a goal down shows char­ac­ter. We didn’t turn up in the first half but we did in the sec­ond, and we need to keep that go­ing.”

The Ro­mans had the bet­ter of it early on and went ahead as Mor­gan latched onto a through ball be­fore round­ing goal­keeper Sam Howes to slot home.

Hamp­ton went into the break all square when Malachi Napa con­nected with a long ball from Howes be­fore fin­ish­ing well.

It took the hosts un­til the 80th minute to find a cru­cial sec­ond as Max Kret­zch­mar sent in Josh Casey’s nice ball.

The points were sealed in stop­page time as Harry Craw­ford thun­dered his shot home. STAR MAN: Max Kret­zch­mar (Hamp­ton) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
